NVIDIA Vsync/adaptive Vsync not working when games are in windowed borderless mode.

post #1 of 4

I don't remember this being an issue so something in my system must have changed. Can anyone else confirm that Vsync works in borderless window mode and why it's not working for me?

Can anyone just confirm if Vsync works in borderless mode for them just so I know that it's a problem in the first place?

Playing SWTOR in Fullscreen (Windowed) mode and though the game settings have VSync greyed out. if you go to the Nvidia Control panel and enable VSync for your game. Vsync will work.

I have played with the settings on my laptop (Lenovo y510p with GT755m SLI) and it will enable Vsync and Vsync Smooth with these game settings. it does work.

I have not tried Adaptive Vsync since its an SLI setup.

I can tell its working since my settings with Vsync OFF will allow the game to run at 80-100 FPS. but with Vsync on in the Nvidia Control Panel they drop to the display's 60 Hz and FPS are 59.9 FPS.

http://youtube.com/user/LiquorCAIN - head to the gaming channel I have (at work att and cant link it directly)

see some of the settings and how it performs on this laptop and my 2 desktops. when I stream, I like to have MSI Afterburner displaying how much the GPU(s) and CPU is being used and the temps/FPS. there is one video there that shows the Nvidia control panel settings and ingame settings used on the Lenovo y510p

here's the direct link to that video I mentioned above...

Another option is Rivatuner, supposing it works in windowed mode. You can download it standalone (not sure if that's the latest version), or as part of MSI Afterburner IIRC.
